In skillet, sauté onions, and green pepper until onions turn opaque, add hamburger and brown until no longer pink, drain Add chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and ketchup, stir add tomato juice. Simmer on low heat until it thickens slightly and while fixing rice. Fix the rice according to directions on box. Mix into hamburger mixture, if too dry add more juice. In large baking dish place part of rice/hamburger mixture, cover with shredded cheese. Continue to layer ending with cheese. Can place green pepper rings on top. Pop in oven set on 350 degrees until casserole heats through and cheese is melted. Can turn broiler on for a few minutes to brown cheese on top. Freezes well for leftovers.
